Portland people

I don't "listen to bands" or "go to shows".

Is there something wrong with me?

Edit: It's not that I don't like music, or live music. I like the bippity bop of a kick drum at a live venue. I like instruments. I like singers. I actually wish Portland had more street corner and MAX station musicians the way Boston did.

To the fucking morons at the show. Stay in one fucking place for more than thirty fucking seconds.

To the shitty sound tech, dude, there is a reason why you do a sound check before the show starts. so yeah, you fucked the sound entirely. thanks.

To the asshole who shoved past my girl and me. Yeah I'm going to push you back, what the fuck do you expect? Telling me that I'm standing in the way when I've been standing in the same fucking place for the past hour? What the fuck? And no, I don't want to take it outside, I just want to watch the fucking show and have a good time, with out dumb fuckers trying to cop an attitude with me. So no, fuck you asshole!

To everyone else at the show, thanks for being polite and knowing how to act in a crowd.

I've been looking for some new music to listen to, and I don't know what else is out there for me to scope out. And yes, I've looked, but I haven't been able to really get a good sit down and listen to, y'know? Maybe it's because I'm not looking in the right places, but would anyone know where would be a good place to find some tunes that are different and original? Or, if there are bands/singers you think rock, who are they? Thanks for takin the time to read this, damnportlanders. :)

I make leather goods and bdsm materials. Custom Items with one-week turn-around most of the time. I've got limitted samples because most of my pictures are on my partner's laptop out of the region at this time, but there are some links below with samples of some items. Collapse )

Hey Portlanders--

Can you tell me where the closest campgrounds are to downtown? Or the most convenient to get to downtownish areas?

Also - can you tell me where there are free unsecured wifi hotspots? No particular area, just name any that you know of!

So, Damnportlanders...

I am visiting your fair city this weekend (9-11th) to scope it out before I move at the end of the month. I have 3 appointments to see possible places to live, but other than that will be looking to have a good time and see as much as possible. I am staying near the convention center, but will have a rental car with unlimited miles. Suggestions for things to do or see this weekend?

Things I like, to narrow down suggestions: I love live shows, music in general, good food, nature, and art.

My bike is broken.It's an old Schwinn.

I know nothing about fixing bikes, but I do know that the pedals/chain is going, but the wheel doesn't turn.

See? I can't even explain the problem right! Any good/cheap places that can fix my poor bicycle?

P.S. I live on SE 27th/Belmont, so close to that would be nice. THANX!

I'm "showing" some of my photography at the Three Monkeys Art Festival at the University of Portland, St. Mary's Lounge, scheduled for Friday, April 8th from 7:00p.m. to 12:00 a.m. in St. Mary's Lounge.

Student paintings, drawings, photography, students bands, poety readings, films and animation, sculptures, etc. etc.

More fun with postings:

So, I was looking for jobs ( as you do on a monday) and came across thi son Craigslist:


Now look at the description- AA or AS, and sales experience, or experience in aesthetics or cosmetology.

And now look at that princely sum.

I was criticised for nanny posting, but at least those people were willing to pay a living wage and help out with future tuition.

free fun?

okay, my girlfriend and i are terribly bored and we need something to do. we don't want to spend a bunch of money, so i need ideas for fun things to do in portland/vancouver that cost little or no money. let's hear what you have!

*EDIT* she has a heart condition, so the hiking idea, while it sounds fun enough, is pretty much out of the question. and the theatre-pub idea, once again while fun, is a no-go seeing as we are 18 and 20.

More fun with Posting, part deux

As a followup:

My letter to the job poster on craigslist:

I am writing in response to the ad on Craigslist.

I would like to inquire what specific responsibilities are involved with the job that requires the education and experience that is asked for in the postion. I would also like to inquire if this is a growth position or commision based position, since the pay structiure is rather low ( according to www.salary.com, the postion for which you are looking to fill, with the 4-5 years experience and a degree, currently shows $14-17.50/hr. Ihn comparision, the $9/hour seems suited to an entry level position, with just the degree and no experience in the field.

Thanks for your time,

Dana Phearson

I don't think that I will get a response, but wanted to show youse guys what I wrote.

Tuesday morning, I am getting an abortion. My parents do not know about it, and my boy friend is the only person who does. We are both under eighteen, and live at home. The abortion will more then likely be over before the afternoon, meaning: I will not be able to go home, where my mother will be. We can't go to his house either, do the fact that the house will not be empty as well. My question is, I need a place to stay, and relax for a few hours afterwards, and we can't rent a hotel room, because of our age. Any suggestions? Please do not burn me, only comment if you are going to suggest something. Thanks, guys.

So I recently got my driver's permit, and I'm looking for safe places to practice driving. I've been driving around empty parking lots at night, but I don't think it's safe to drive at night yet, and I'd like to practice on real roads with stop signs and speed limits. I live in the Tanasbourne Hillsboro/Beaverton area, so I'm looking for something that's not too far away. And also any useful tips about learning to drive? I could use all the help I can get.

thanks in advance!


For the record, I'd like to say that Bishop's Barbers sux.

Three times now I've gotten off work early to get a haircut. I get there between 8:20 and 8:30, but they say "hey, we're closed." Even though the door says open till 9. Even though it doesn't take 40 min. to get a hair cut. Even though the room is empty - I'd understand if they were stacked 10 deep...

Tonight at 8:20 the door was locked and the girl was cutting someones hair as she was chatting with some guy. Don't know if he was her boyfriend or what. Wouldn't even look up at me as I was at the door.

Super lame-o.

I'm not an ass or anything, but dude - it's only polite to be open when you say you're going to be open (or at least acknowledge that someone exists). I always tip, and when people have squeezed me in before I always tip double! I've worked c/s and sales jobs before, it's a bitch, but it's part of the territory...

Anyone know of any other good places to get a hair cut?
